Not at this time.

That looks great

Looks great, which brace did you end up using, having trouble finding one that fits with a supercharger. Thanks

Who makes the adapter kit?

lincoln361 03-04-2013 04:31 PM

Was that the price included with the paint job. That looks sweet.

ZWA SS 03-04-2013 05:02 PM

That is 100% sexiness there!
And I think the fuse box untainted compliments the other black under hood.

LS3 SS 03-04-2013 05:28 PM

Looks great. Even though they make little to no improvements, they certainly make the engine bay look a lot better.

I totally agree!!!

vegassam66 03-05-2013 06:30 PM

Thanks for the info, picked one up today from the dealer, they had a hard time finding it, since they just received it this morning. Did you paint or powder coat?

parano 03-05-2013 06:37 PM

Nice!!

What does the adaptor kit actually do? Does it act as a shim to raise the brace?? thanks

On the 2010 & some of the 2011 they did not come with the mounting holes to install the brace. TPiS makes a "kit" to be able to install the factory brace.

Where can you buy the Strut Tower Brace for $111.10?

Yes. They are all the same (except ZL1).

ssmike 11-29-2013 05:02 PM

Hard to believe the adapter kit is more expensive than the brace itself!

Only for the 2010 and early 2011s. Anything newer is a direct bolt on

Deftones 11-29-2013 06:06 PM

The adapter kit requires drilling so why not drill and bolt the brace right on?

130R 11-29-2013 07:52 PM

You shouldn't need the adapter kit with a supercharger; only if you don't have holes for the brace from the factory.

For some reason, the ZL1 has a hump in the brace. I have a Maggie and the standard brace fits just fine.

The shape of the tower is different on the ones that come drilled for the brace. The adapter kit makes up for the lack of relief for the brace:
